Featuring The Jordan Klapman Quintet: Shelley Hamilton (vocals); David Williams (vocals); Ron Johnston (bass); John Collin (drums) and Jordan Klapman (keyboard)

After Elvis joined the army, and before the British Invasion, there emerged a period of quintessential American pop music, when teen idols and girl group hits dominated the airwaves. Memorable hit tunes with a style both innocent and sophisticated were born out of New York’s Brill Building— penned and produced by emerging Jewish musicians who would rise to great fame: Leiber and Stoller, Carole King, Neil Sedaka, Burt Bacharach, Ellie Greenwich, Cynthia Weil…and many more. Enjoy classic hits such as On Broadway, Natural Woman, Walk On By, One Fine Day, and more—and dance the afternoon away! Refreshments will be served. Generously sponsored by the Miles Nadal JCC Music Scholarship and Innovation Fund.

Don’t miss Jordan Klapman’s multi-access fall lecture series The Birth of Jewish Pop Rock – the perfect complement to this concert!
